I see no Bowling in the new resort.

I have the Brunswick Pro Bowling for the Wii, I got tired of dealing with some of the stuff and all but it does have lane transition.

It's there, right hand side about 1/2 way down, look close it's there, right next to golf which is also awesome.

Tiger woods golf for the Wii allows you to play any of the top courses and the weather will be exactly as it is that day, so if it's snowing and you want to play beth page black then you had better bring a Wii shovel.

When I play a video game, I want to play BETTER than I do in real life smile

Strike Force is a good game. Agree with Chaaaz above.


anything less then 279 is a bad game for me on Strike Force

my average is like 250+

my coworker raves about bowling evolution. PHysics are suposed to be good and you can get the skin for your ball and tweak the settings so it reacts the way the real one would.

brunswick bowling is good on the iphone.

i have the PC version of Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling. it works perfectly in windows 95 and 98. but when i tried it in my XP computer, it would lag on the timing meter you had to click on to make an accurate throw. i had to change the compatibilty to windows 95 to get it to work properly. i still cant adjust the spin and aim at the arrows without using the mouse. in window 95-98, you can play the entire game without using the mouse.

also i cannot get it to work at all on vista or 7. guess i'm gonna have to keep a PC aound so i can play the old games.

but if you have a good game card in your PC, this game is really fun and the pin action is very realistic.

There hasn't been a decent bowling game since Brunswick Circuit Pro Bowling to my knowledge/opinion, Just doesn't have the worldwide interest to create a game with big funding behind it, Sure Brunswick may come to the party but It just lacks the quality that us bowlers would want in a game, like lack of Pro bowlers and attributes or improved graphics or extra features etc. EA Sports a big name company with money behind them would never make a bowling game for example. Sad but true.

A lot will disagree, but I think the Wii bowling game is pretty darn good. I put together a free bowling game site (in sig) and the Wii bowling is better than nearly all of those.

Concrete Bowling or Bowling Evolution are the best out there...

I play the Brunswick Pro Bowling game on PSP quite a bit and it's pretty good -- it's about the closest thing to the Pro Circuit game from years back that I've found.

I downloaded it directly from the Sony store to my PSP.

PROS:
-Earn money in tournaments to buy new gear (Brunswick balls/shoes/etc)
-Changing lane conditions and a variety of oil patterns
-Realistic pin physics
-Decent graphics
-Good variety of Brunswick balls
-Easier than real bowling, once you get the hang of the controls

CONS:
-Can't skip computer opponent during match play
-If you skip a League Night it counts against your average
-Controls occasionally become touchy causing missed shots (too much like real life in this way)
-Maybe a little too easy to exploit (for example, I found a perfect set up where I can throw a straight-ball for a strike with a house ball repeatedly)
